My experience is also that Google will not tell me. They used to have
web pages detailing what they were looking for years ago but I think
it eventually dawned on them that the spammers can read these too.
I have made sure my forward and reverse dns entries and the EHLO domain
name my mailserver uses are all correct and I have set up SPF records
for my domain yet Google still put lots of emails I send to gmail.com
and other Google mail service users in their spam folders.
Additionally, my experience is that when I find someone abusing Google
services to send or otherwise facilitate spam, Google do not provide
any way that I can notify them about this abuse.
Best advice is to suggest to the sender that they use a different
email provider, one that doesn't put their legitimate incoming emails
in the bin.
